Brownstoner Upstate: Greene County Luxury


    1028 Sutton Road, Durham: $750,000

    Here’s the deal with the current luxury home market in Greene County: There’s more available than we expected at the $2,000,000-plus range, almost nothing in the $1,000,000 range, and some very nice offerings in the $500,000 to $800,000 range. Since it’s Greene County (north of Ulster County, west of the Hudson), you get a whole lot of value for your home buying dollar, more so than areas south or even Columbia County at this point. So have a look at these beauties. See if any of these fancies strike your fancy.
